Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MCRacing Nice Compressor
I did what other reviews stated to do, and that was to change the iron pipe drain tube to a brass one. That was excellent advice to do that right away.
The compressor itself is very nice. I have it up and running, its a little louder than I would have liked, but its OK. Its not as loud as the one I had there, so its better.
The quality appears to be very good. I am very happy with the purchase. It came nicely palleted and wrapped. No damage and the delivery guy was very curtious and helpful. I would recommend this air compressor to others.

I am very pleased, compared to my last compressor this one is quite, fast to come up to pressure and gives me great PSI. I thought the oil would be an issue but it is no problem at all. At this point I am loving it, great quality through out. Added rubber pads to the feet and an auto condensation remover and a new two stage filter.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Rich Great compressor, cheap drain valve
Like the other reviewers before me, I found this compressor to be great. It fills up quickly, it's quiet, and it flows a large amount of CFM.
After I got it setup I went around and started sealing up miscellaneous leaks; which is to be expected on a brand new compressor... not a big deal. What was a big deal was the drain valve. After applying some sealant to the threads, and reinstalling it, the cheap chinese made 90 degree black iron piece on the bottom of the tank snapped flush. Needless to say I was pretty irritated.
I will be replacing this tomorrow with some brass pieces instead. Do yourselves a favor and just replace this part right off the bat; trust me, it will fail eventually anyway.. might as well replace it right away.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by rmaustin Best buy!!
I took a long time planning my new garage and felt the compressor choice was equally as important. Well my choiceof the MaxAir was spot on.
Very quick to build pressure, quiet, easy to wire and adjust this compressor is perfect for anthing including spraying.
First it will build the garage and then handle my projects.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Topher Product works exactly as advertised
This compressor rocks. I did a lot of research, and actually bought a competitor product that didn't measure up. I am amazed at the amount of air that this compressor provides for the money. The product has a sturdy feel to it, and I expect it will work well for years to come. Thanks, HD, for this excellent product at an excellent price.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Norbert Outstanding, quiet compressor for the money.
I have spent over 150k on tools and equipment in the past 3 years (I own an auto restoration facility) and purchased this compressor for my professional home shop.
I did a month of research prior to making my decision and looked at everything in the 800-2000 dollar range.
This compressor, made and sold by Wood Industries (a US company) exceeded my expectations in fill time, pressure, flow rate, noise level (nice and quiet for home use) and aesthetics.
It has run everything that I have used in my home shop without issue, including spray guns, grinders, cutting wheels, and air guns. It runs nice an quiet too. I built a top end enclosure thinking that it would be too loud for regular residential area use, but that was totally unnecessary.
I added a fantastic moisture sensing drain valve, a moisture drop and quality regulator and coalescing filter and have a top notch setup.
Of course, if you are going to run 2 or more tools at a time in a professional shop, you will need a higher CFM rate, but for single operator use, this is a great unit.
I had a minor issue with a component after 2 years of use, and although my 2 year warranty had officially expired 2 months prior to my call, the customer service folks and manager at Wood Industries insisted that they take care of the issue and send me the part I needed free of charge. No argument, no push-back, just a clear desire to take care of their customer. They did not even ask me to pay for shipping.
I've owned businesses for 25 years and my customer service experience with this company has been one of the biggest and best surprises during that time. It's so rare to have a company stand behind its product like this and to go out of their way to make an issue that a customer has right.
Not only is this compressor an absolute steal for the price, the customer service and warranty are simply incredible in this day and age.
I would not hesitate to recommend this model, nor this manufacturer, to any friend or my own family.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Doityourselfer Very good for cost
It was the best bang for your buck for this size compressor for the CFM that it produces just wish it had more about instructions for size of breaker for the unit

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BeegDiesel Great compressor for home use
Had this thing for 2 years now, and bought it at home depot during a sale online.
for home use it has been great for me. doesn't take long to fill up, but it is loud. Your not going to have a conversation with someone standing within 5-10 feet of this thing while it is pumping air.
I use it for my Pneumatic tools for automotive work, winterizing my sprinkler system on a 10k lot, and filling up my tires.
Again for home use it is great. Industrial use no.
For winterization, I Have 6 zones and let the tank drain for each zone, and then let it build up again. I let the pump cool down a bit in between.
Only 3 issues i have had so far, were the Drain valve is horrible and a plastic piece blew off the pressure switch. 3rd is the Air filters keep rattling loose.
1. build your self a Brass Drain valve in the plumbing aisle of HD.
2. JB weld and a screw fixed the pressure switch.
3. still debating on what i want to do with the Air filters shaking loose.
Do yourself a favor and don't buy the cheap husky Air regulator. Go buy a nice industrial one, with a built in water trap.
